Everything we do at New Hope Ministries is because of our personal relationships with Jesus Christ. It is His love for us, and by His saving grace, that we are motivated to share that love with those around us. We want the world to know who this Jesus is so we can all spend eternity with Him and with each other.
Chuck and Ilse Chambers
In 2005, Chuck and Ilse Chambers and Fransisco and Norma Ortiz were called by the Lord to start New Hope Ministries. By late 2006, they were ministering on the site they are located at currently. NHM creatively reaches the people of the highlands in Guatemala, specifically in the Department of Sololá through a Christian k-6 school, a feeding program and a local church.
In 2013, NHM was granted Distribution Partner status with Feed My Starving Children, a Christian non-profit organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit.
The ministry relies heavily on the local staff, teachers, administrators and drivers to keep everything running smoothly on and around our campus. It is our hope to empower the local community to raise up a Christian community that will affect the whole area for Jesus.
The Lord has greatly blessed this ministry, which has shown much fruit and is growing to serve more and more all the time in the Guatemalan highlands.
